Telegraph reporter John Percy has said that an arbitration hearing was held on Tuesday regarding the transfer of Kamil Grosicki from West Brom to Nottingham Forest and the result could be announced as soon as tomorrow morning (Thursday).
Albion and Forest agreed a deal for Grosicki on deadline day but the transfer was thrown into doubt after Forest submitted the relevant paperwork just seconds after the deadline passed.
The move is still up in the air, but Percy has revealed that a hearing took place on Tuesday and that a decision is expected by Thursday morning.

Percy also said that Forest ‘remain hopeful’ that a deal can be agreed and the Polish international will be allowed to join Chris Hughton’s side.
Grosicki tweeted last week and alluded to the fact that a decision may be made on Tuesday (Today), with him tweeting #Tuesday and the scales of justice emoji.

It now seems that this court hearing is what Grosicki was referring to and hopefully the result of the hearing will bring some relief for Baggies fans and Forest fans alike.
However, should he be unsuccessful in becoming a Forest player, Grosicki will still be able to be added to Albion’s Premier League squad, meaning he could still have a future at The Hawthorns.
Baggies fans should be as interested as Forest fans over the next few days as we wait to find out where Grosicki will ply his trade this season. He wouldn’t start for the Baggies in the Premier League but he could be a valuable asset with this season’s congested schedule.
